    • When will most schools actually re-open in September ?   And when they open, will they be providing teaching over the number hours 9am to 3pm  ?   I am thinking of the school I attended, which was a large Victorian building, with many modern extensions.  The classrooms which could accommodate about 35 Children elbow to elbow, will only be able to accommodate 20 at the most with any reasonable distancing.   Or does the whole class  of say 35 stay in a bubble and the teachers move around to teach the different subjects ?    I can see many schools opening later in September, not for all pupils for all days and not doing the full hours.   This is going to be very difficult to manage for all those concerned, including parents looking to return to work.     
    • Hi.   If you do a search of our forums you will find other people who've had trouble with Marquis. Sadly people don't always update their threads with the final result.   Scroll up this page to the red strip at the top, and type Marquis into the white search box on the right.   HB
    • I think independent assessments and quotations will be essential. Once again please monitor this thread for a for the reply later on or tomorrow
    • We'd love to return it but from everything I've read it would a long drawn out business so keeping it would probably be simpler.   I think we are going to give them a chance to sort the heating/hot water.We've got very squeaky brakes now which my local garage is going to look at a week on Monday. I'm saving all receipts etc. I'd also like to charge them for fuel used and my time doing what they should have done.   The time they take to get anything done is what is bothering me. If I choose to go somewhere else for a repair for anything would I be able to charge Marquis or do I have to continue using their warranty   I hadn't thought of getting an independent assessment, not sure how you go about it but I'll look into it. Thanks for the reply  
    • Bristol Energy may be in a difficult position at the moment, as Bristol City Council who own them, have decided to sell .  Whether this has affected them being able to deal with Data Protection Subject Access Requests ?  I should imagine that their customers may be contacting them in large numbers given the uncertainty and that may the reason for any delays.    The OP may want to resolve their issue as soon as possible, as if another energy company does buy the portfolio of customers remaining, I am not sure this would lead to a quicker resolution.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
      Thanks for reading

I changed electricity suppliers back in August, having been with Southern Electric for a while, and cancelled the monthly direct debit just before the DD for the new supplier was taken in September. Southern had a month to take the final payment before I cancelled the DD, but took no action. So I thought I would wait until they sent me a final bill and then pay them, having had a revised bill in early august saying that they owed me £17.50. I worked out that the most I would owe would be £50 or so. I then got a phone call early this month asking if I knew there was an outstanding payment - I explained that I hadn't had a final bill, so the guy promised me he would email it to me straight away. They sent me a duplicate of the revised bill saying that they owed me £17.50 :rolleyes:


Fast forward to today, I have received a "Unpaid final bill" letter asking me to pay £175. I nearly fell off the chair in shock. I have yet to receive any sort of bill or explanation as to how they have arrived at that amount. And of course the letter was carefully timed to arrive on a Saturday when all the offices are shut, so I can't find out until next week.


Do they have a habit of making up dubious final demands? The way they have handled this makes me very suspicious that they just hope people will pay up what is asked :-x

Hi Huff & Puff


I would send them a SAR Request with a postal order of £10. They will send you all the data they have on your account including statements etc. You can then work

out what it should be. Don't rely on their explanations. They have 40 days to respond to your SAR Request.

I would say, that whilst a SAR is a good idea, you could possibly avoid spending the £10 on this.


Send them a letter enclosing a print out of the bill that was emailed to you along the following lines:


Dear Sirs

Thank you for your letter of (Xdate) advising I have an overdue final bill of £175.00. Attached for your reference is a copy of a bill that was sent to me previously showing that I have a credit balance of £17.50.


Please, therefore, explain how the balance has changed so significantly. Whilst I was a customer with you, I paid for my energy consumption via Monthly Direct Debit, and am therefore shocked to learn of this supposed outstanding balance.


I trust that you will provide me with a full break down of the charges to the account and that further correspondence will not be necessary on the basis that there has clearly been some error on your part.


If I do not receive a satisfactory response to my complaint, I will have no alternative than to escalate my complaint to the Energy Supply Ombudsman. May I draw your attention to the fact that if this escalation is necessary, you will incur charges levied by the Ombudsman and most likely an additional cost in the form of a compensation payment being made to me for the poor customer service you have provided
